The North Dakota House voted yesterday in favor of requiring abortion providers in the state to “inform” women that abortion terminates the life of a human being. The bill’s sponsors just want to arm women with the facts, dontchaknow! This beacon of journalistic integrity says the bill will “help women be more informed about the decision to abort.”
Oh, is that right? If the goal is to educate us silly, impulsive women, then why does Rep. Chuck Damschen (R) say, “If it prevented even one woman from having an abortion … it would be a good bill?” That’s the stupidest cost-benefit analysis I’ve ever encountered. Personally I think a successful abortion policy outcome is one wherein the number of abortions performed reflects the number needed.
Need further proof that the “pro-life” agenda is one predicated on the notion that a woman’s body is a mere vessel for the children (i.e. property) of men? The measure says a woman’s egg becomes a human being when it is fertilized by a man’s sperm. Sperm is magic, in the eyes of these sickos. Gestating a fetus isn’t work; splooging is the real reproductive effort! Eggs are just empty, lifeless pods awaiting that sperm magic that will immediately turn them into “people.”
Representatives voted 61 to 31 in favor of the bill. Next stop: North Dakota Senate.
